"Independence is the recognition of the fact that
yours is the responsibility of judgement
and nothing can help you escape it --
that no substitute can do your thinking,
as no pinch-hitter can live your life."
by:
Ayn Rand
[Alisa Zinov'yevna Rosenbaum] (1905-1982) Russian-American novelist, philosopher, playwright, and screenwriter

    From another independent thinker and doer... “Do stuff. Be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration’s shove or society’s kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It’s all about paying attention. Attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. Stay eager.” Susan Sontag

    As he wrote on the ground, her accusers stood around wanting to lay blame to the lady. Let him who is without sin cast the first stone. The word written on the ground ? Conscience. Responsibility to ones own conscience dictates judgment to be made in one accord with the Spirit of truth. I will put my laws in their hearts.
